Episode 4 Springleaf

    • Comedy

With SW5 member (and fellow undercover cop) Clarke tied up in the backroom of SW6 HQ, Pat needs to come up with a rescue plan, stat. But when he leaks Clarke's whereabouts to SW5 gang leader Janet (Natalie Cassidy), existing tensions between the two gangs begin to escalate. Meanwhile, on the comedy circuit, there's another terrible crime to deal with - a blatant case of material theft...
A true(ish) crime podcast, which sees undercover cop Pat Springleaf (James Acaster) share police wire recordings from the biggest case of his career: working to infiltrate and bring to justice the notorious SW6 gang.
Back in 2013, ex-conman-turned-undercover-cop Pat was in the middle of a career-defining undercover gig - but problems beset him on all sides: the gang are getting suspicious; his wife wants a divorce; the police are demanding results; and his ex partner in crime is blackmailing him. Not an ideal situation for someone with a burning need to please absolutely everybody. In 2023, meanwhile, Pat and his producer Adams play clips to studio guests as they unpack the criminal hijinks that launched the career of the man now reasonably widely-known as James Acaster.
